Los Angeles, CA — The Annual Beach-Bound Book Bash returns for its 8th annual event on June 8, 2024, bringing readers and writers together for a fun virtual tea and literary celebration. The event takes place from 2:00pm to 4:00pm Pacific Time and is available to watch on the Books That Make You YouTube Channel and Facebook Page. Open to all, The Beach-Bound Book Bash free event hosts games and offers prizes in its Facebook Group.

Presented by, Books That Make You and Black Château Enterprises, the Beach-Bound Book Bash spotlights authors of different genres as they discuss and read excerpts from their works, sharing recipes, and inspiring readers to curate their summer reading lists.

“Books have a remarkable ability to unite a vast spectrum of readers. We love bringing authors and readers together,” says Desireé Duffy, Founder of Black Château Enterprises and Books That Make You. 

Jennifer Anne Gordon will host this year’s Beach-Bound Book Bash. She’s worn many hats as an actress, artist, dancer, host, magician’s assistant, writer, and muse.  

Here’s a taste of what this year’s Book Bound Beach Bash will include: 

Samantha Atzeni, author of the pocket-sized book, “W(h)ine & Cheese,” will share tips for surviving any summer party as an introvert while managing necessary social interactions.  

Ann Charles, a USA Today Bestselling Author, will discuss setting an impactful tone for your book in the introduction. She’ll demonstrate several examples from her published works.
